I love carrots, I will often grate some carrots or beet into my morning tomato salad with scallions, Himalaya salt and soy oil.

This looks wonderful, a perfect and delicious hors d’œuvres for summer cocktails on the deck. At first, I thought you had put remoulade into the cucumber boats but I love the carrots, so pretty. And the mini cucs are perfect for this!
